Here are the important milestones you should be aware of for the 2016 D Application and On-boarding Cycle:

  • 2016 D Application Cycle Opens until July 30th

  • Interviews Occur August 13th through September 4th

  • Acceptance Notifications SENT by Saturday, September 10th

The On-boarding process will begin once the acceptance notifications are sent and will continue through November 2016.

  • Department-Specific Orientation & Training: November

  • Official Start Date (if cleared): December 1st, 2016 through February 28th, 2017

If you know you will be unavailable for these dates (out of town, in school, etc.), it is recommended that you delay applying until you are able to make the required dates.

Availability for the first rotation: Please note, as a new intern you will be expected to serve one 4-hour shift per week for the course of your first rotation. This means that you will not be eligible for any leave from the internship of more than 14 days until you have successfully completed the 2016 D rotation. You should only anticipate applying to the 2016 D cohort if you can meet all of the eligibility requirements.
